(Newser) – Johnny Quinn found himself yesterday in a position we can all relate to: On the wrong side of a locked door. But the door in question was to one of Sochi's now-storied bathrooms, and Quinn is an American bobsledder and former NFL player in possession of more than a few well-developed muscles. The story does not end well for the door: "With no phone to call for help, I used my bobsled push training to break out," Quinn tweeted, along with a photo of the demolished door. "What's left isn't quite a Johnny Quinn-shaped hole but it did the job," notes Sean Newell at Deadspin.

LOL. My friend's 80 year old grandpa had to do the same thing to get out of from behind a jammed bathroom door. If he can do the same thing to a bathroom door, why wouldn't we think a pretty, young muscular stud man athlete couldn't do the same? This is a story…...why?

Just you watch, he will get a bill of about 50,000 Rubles....around $1,435 bucks in American dollars. But they will replace the door for like $20.
